Update on status of TV projects

The Miss Marple mystery ‘Sleeping Murder’ aired on Canadian television CBC – as announced – on Sunday 15th. If you’ve watched it, any comments about it are welcome! I checked ITV1’s listings for this week: but ‘Sleeping Murder’ isn’t listed for Saturday. So I did some digging on the net and the new information that I found on Custard TV says that it will air in the UK on ITV 1 on Sunday, February 5. Listing on ITV.Com

The mini-series made for US TV CBS ‘The Hades Factor’ is now listed on IMDb. And it is slated to air in May 2006. On the website for co-author of the novel Gayle Lynds I found a picture of Sophia Myles on the set. As I still haven’t received permission from the website to put it on my site I post the link to it: Go here to see it.

Don’t forget: Today is the day. After having returned to London from the ‘Tristan & Isolde’ promotion and some meetings in L.A., Sophia Myles is back in the States at the Sundance Film Festival. Today she attends the premiere screening of ‘Art School Confidential’ and meets the press.

‘Miss Marple: Sleeping Murder’ on CBC this Sunday!

Even before ‘Sleeping Murder’ airs on ITV in the UK on January 28, the Miss Marple episode will – according to this report – air on CBC Television this Sunday, January 15, at 8 p.m. If you see it, can you please tell us about it?

Sleeping Murder, filmed in Devon, tells the story of a young woman, Gwenda (Sophia Myles), who is instinctively drawn to the perfect home in the picturesque seaside village of Dillmouth, while searching for a house. But the house has a terrible past, a past she is forced to confront as she suffers a disturbing case of deja vu. It also stars Dawn French (French & Saunders), Martin Kemp (The EastEnders), Paul McGann (Hornblower) and Geraldine Chaplin (Dr. Zhivago), among many others.

Airing Date for Miss Marple

According to Digital Spy the first episode of Miss Marple 2 will air January 28, 2006. Sophia Myles is playing a lead role in this episode called Sleeping Murder.

Some people at Gavin DeGraw Messageboards have posted that they saw the music video ‘We Belong Together’ (promotion for ‘Tristan & Isolde’ also featuring Sophia Myles) during previews at US screenings of ‘Walk The Line’ and ‘Rent’. I think this means the video is probably soon going to surface on TV or on the net. Let’s keep our eyes open! Any info on this is always welcome, thanks!

The screening times for Art School Confidential at the Sundance Film Festival:

Mon. Jan 23, 6:00pm, Eccles
Tue. Jan 24, 11:30am, Library
Wed. Jan 25, 9:00pm, Tower
Fri. Jan 27, 6:30pm, Peery’s

More on ‘The Hades Factor’

I’ve added a site for Sophia’s new project: ‘The Hades Factor‘. There’s also a Press Release that I found at The Futon Critc stating that Col. Jonathan Smith’s fiancée (Sophia’s role) isn’t called Dr. Sophia Russell as in the novel but Dr. Sophie Amsden. BTW, I’ve started reading the novel and so far I can only recommend it, the story is certainly very gripping.

New role in ‘The Hades Factor’ for CBS

Sophia Myles is heading for Toronto to shoot her scenes for a new role in a four-hour mini-series for America’s CBS. The full name of the project is ‘Robert Ludlum’s Covert One: The Hades Factor’. It is not yet listed on the IMDb but this is a summary of what I could find on the internet:

Mira Sorvino, Stephen Dorff, Anjelica Huston, Colm Meaney and Blair Underwood star in the small-screen adaptation of Robert Ludlum and Gayle Lynds’s 2000 bestselling novel of the same name, about a secret intelligence agency (“Covert One”) consisting of political and technical experts who fight corruption and conspiracy, reporting directly to the U.S. president. Mick Jackson is on board to direct the four-hour mini-series from a script by Elwood Reid. Production is expected to shoot in Toronto until December for an airdate next year. Filming will also take place in Paris and Berlin. As for plot specifics, “Hades” tracks the efforts of a disease specialist (and ex-agent of Covert One) named Col. Jonathan Smith (Stephen Dorff) who uncovers a conspiracy involving the President (Anjelica Huston) and her attempt to cover up the deliberate spread of an Ebola-like virus, which claimed the life of Smith’s fiancée. Mira Sorvino will play Rachel Russell, a Covert One agent who goes missing after killing two men, with Colm Meaney as a former spy and friend of Smith’s and Underwood as the No. 2 official at Covert One.

Sophia’s playing Stephen Dorff’s fiancée which is called Sophia Russell [edit]Dr. Sophie Amsden[/edit] and is an American scientist. She’ll be in Toronto for the coming 3 weeks. After ‘Art School Confidential’ this is her second collaboration with Anjelica Huston and also the second time she’s portraying an American character.
